Develop Your Financial Common Sense
In his best-selling book, What Losing Taught Me About Winning,
Fran Tarkenton noted, "I have yet to hear any entrepreneur complain
about being up to his ears in cash with nowhere to spend it."
Tarkenton, who has run twelve businesses with annual revenues
ranging from under $1 million to $142 million, maintains that every
business has a cash crunch at one time or another. That's why it's
so vital to develop your financial common sense early on, so you do
not have to rely on dollars to keep your business alive.

early going, to be able to buy his or her way out of problems. In
his book he says the way around borrowing, and buying your way out
of problems, is to leverage your relationships.
cannot be parochial or narrowly focused, operating in a protective
crouch," Tarkenton cautioned, "while all those businesses around
you, both big and small, are reaching out and joining forces
wherever possible. If you are going to succeed as an entrepreneur,
you have to learn to think of your business not only as an income
generating tool, but also as a leveraging tool — something that has
value that can be traded to create greater value."

How To Find Best Cruise Vacation Values
for international vacations are now available in the marketplace,
with cruise deals for as little as $50 a day per person. This
includes comfortable well-maintained accommodations with maid
service, 3 meals daily, plus shipboard activities and nightly
Cruise trips are a super bargain and the ship
lines can provide outstanding value because of the efficiency with
which they deliver their service. For example, the typical cruise
ship has teams of room stewards, chefs and waiters working 7 days a
week to clean 1,000 cabins per day and prepare and serve three or
four meals a day to 2,000 passengers.
When the ship sails
from the port of departure, the staff knows exactly how many meals
will be served for the entire cruise and the ship has been
provisioned accordingly. Every cabin, table, and employee is fully
utilized every day. That's much more efficient and less wasteful
than the system land-based hotels and restaurants must employ to
serve a much smaller group of customers who vary in number daily.
As ships have gotten larger and cruise lines have grown into
billion-dollar enterprises, feeding and transporting more than 15
million passengers every year, the cruise lines' huge buying power
has reduced their costs for everything consumed on the ship. Plus
larger ships and show lounges spread the cost of entertainers, the
captain, officers, and cruise director over more people. And unlike
airlines and hotels that accept empty seats and rooms during slow
periods, cruise lines will do whatever it takes to sail full.
All lines, except the four 6-star cruise lines, will slash prices as
low as they need to in order to fill every cabin. Even the 6-star
lines are now offering discounts and free excursions that were once
They do this for two reasons. First, on most
lines a significant percentage of the crews' compensation comes from
gratuities — and there are no gratuities from empty cabins. Second,
venues such as casinos, spas, boutiques, photography studios, and
excursion desks are completely dependent on onboard purchases.
Purchases that are obviously directly related to the number of
All of this has resulted in the best
bargains ever for people cruising today.
